I blogged about village markets of Assam some days back. I knew that The Family was also taking photographs, but I didn’t suspect that the photos would be so totally different. Here is a gallery of things that she noticed.
The piles of vegetables are things both of us saw. But she also noticed mosquito nets, bottles of honey, cane baskets, brooms. I did not look closely at people setting up their stalls, nor at tea gardens. She was not paying attention to cattle markets, or fish. Is this a gender difference?
IMHO a sample set of two is too small to generalize gender differences 🙂 it might just be a perspective / personality difference right? I agree a lot of what one photograph’s depends on whats on their mind, but to put that in a gender bin may be bit of a stretch!
Two women may notice/photograph entirely different things and so can two men!
P.S. That said I do like how ‘she’ has cleanliness (broom) and health (mosquito nets) on her mind 🙂
Thank you for the clear explanation 🙂
